The Dean's Advisory Council (DAC) is the external consultative group supporting the dean of the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science. It serves a vital role in linking the college's strategic objectives and activities with the interests of external constituents and industry groups. The DAC is made up of alumni, professionals and experts who provide strategic guidance to the college across a spectrum of issues and challenge areas. Its members are invaluable sources of knowledge, ideas and contacts, and serve as ambassadors for Lehigh.
